There are no magic pills, special drinks or superior diets that will give you the perfect body in a matter of days. Eating right and exercising have always been and still are the best solution to a healthy lifestyle. So why should you detox if your liver, skin, intestine, lymph, lungs and kidneys are already detoxing your body from pollutants 24 hours and 7 days a week? Because, our bodies need extra help ridding pollutants like everyday household products, environmental toxins, pesticides, processed foods, alcohol and prescription drugs to name a few. So here is part two of 5 health benefits of detoxing those harmful pollutants.
5 Health Benefits of Detox Part 2
1) Clear State of Mind:
Clearing out pollutants from your body – such as sugar, alcohol, processed foods and foods with additives – have been all linked to mental dysfunction. Fast foods, preservatives and sugary drinks have all been linked to ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), autism, dyslexia, and other mental disorders that incite stress and depression. Our brains, like other muscles, need the proper nutrients to work properly and releasing toxins from the brain will help give you a clear state of mind.
2) Beautiful Skin:
Taking care of your largest organ, the skin, is as important as taking care of any organ in your body. Your skin helps you from getting sick and protects – even though it’s not an iron suit – from easily damaging your bones, muscles and internal organs. Your skin also helps manage your body temperature even while creating vitamin D from the sun’s rays. That’s why it’s important to exercise and sweat out the toxins in your body. Also, cleansing your body will prevent pollutants from effecting with acne.
3) Feeling Lighter
Feeling sluggish and heavy is usually brought by fast and junk foods that create an unhealthy environment in your body. Your organs have to work twice as hard to rid certain heavy foods. However, when detoxing, your body will flush out the excess sugar, fat, alcohol and other additives that has been slowing you down.
4) Properly Aging
Ever wonder how abuela and other elderly people in most foreign countries live for so long? Most of it has to do with eating natural foods (vegetables and fruits) and not eating fast and processed foods. When carefully detoxing with foods that have certain vitamins and antioxidant nutrients you’ll start witnessing a clearer mind, healthier skin, lighter feeling and more energy.
5) Detoxing Bad Eating Habits:
Detoxing is great for ridding toxins, boosting energy and clearing a cloudy mind – but it’s also great for breaking the bad habits of eating fried and processed foods, sugar, alcohol and caffeine. Once you commit yourself to carefully detoxing while avoiding certain foods, you will also break cravings that have caused you the need to detox.
